On August 26 we presented our Science Webinar with Dr Jennifer King and Dr Anna Cifuentes-Rius about overcoming the delivery challenge for nucleic acid drugs. Deputy CEO & Chief Commercial Officer, Dr Chris Baldwin hosted the event and there was Q&A at the end of the presentations. After the technical and scientific questions were answered, Dr Chris Baldwin and CEO Dr Ian Dixon were on hand to address business-related questions relating to Exopharm.
We would like to thank our presenters Dr King and Dr Cifuentes-Rius for their engaging presentations and insights into nucleic acids and drug delivery and to our audience members for asking some interesting questions and engaging in the live webinar. We hope you enjoy the replay. To access the presentation slides, click here.
